Press anouncement:
Elvis Kicked out his first Las Vegas August 1972 week with determination and pleasure. He added new songs into his repertoire such as '' What Now My Love '' , '' My Way '' and went back into his post-army days with '' Fever '' who will become a favorite for many fans at that time . The first CD features the opening show of August 4, 1972 recorded from the audience and in great quality for such recordings, certainly one of the best sounding audience from that year. The original tape is missing a few songs and those were replaced with the songs from the first concert of the second night and extra bonus tracks from that dinner show, including his first live version of '' Fever ''. The sound of these audience recordings were remastered from the original recordings for the best quality possible.

The line-up songs of the opening night gave a very different and dynamic performance with '' A Big Hunk 'O Love '' as the second number followed by '' Never Been To Spain ''. '' Mystery Train / Tiger Man '' took the spot of '' Polk Salad Annie '' that night ( not performed ) and the medley part of the show was of great quality and sung with sincerity. His two new ballads were also added and '' My Babe '' made a comeback into the show replacing '' Suspicious Minds '', but unfortunately only for his opening show. '' An American Trilogy '' was the show stopper of this season and often performed before the closing number.

A week later at the August 12, 1972 M.S. was still in control and has changed a bit the line up and went back to what would become his standard, however since his opening he added some songs performed that year like '' For The Good Times '' and '' Until It's Time For You To Go '', a few others just made it back into the show ; Polk Salad Annie, Suspicious Minds, I Got A Woman / Amen and Proud Mary. This second CD features a show of excellent quality and recorded from the soundboard.
Altogether these two performances recorded during the first week of August 1972 in Las Vegas are an excellent demonstration of what would become the rest of the season.
